Trends and Targets for 5/09/2017

Share this

CARD FACTORY (LSE:CARD) Recent news of Yellow Pages final demise reminded of the thump when an unopened copy hit the bottom of an empty wheelie bin. A secret hope similar fate awaits the greeting card industry appears a wasted dream. Despite the internet and common sense, people still insist on sending greeting cards to celebrate mediocrity. Which brings us to the Card Factory and their share price.

When we view their downtrend since 2015, it appears pretty nicely designed, hinting any movement fairly soon above 343p (BLUE) should bring an initial greeting to 361p with secondary, if exceeded, at a longer term major occasion of 404p. We've designed to designate 404p as a major occasion due to this matching (okay, slightly bettering) the share price' all time high back in September 2015.

It would be utter madness not to expect some dramatics at such a level, if only due to those whose funds were trapped at the prior high liquidating and causing a deluge of sell orders. The unpleasant reality for those so effected comes, if the share price actually manages to CLOSE above the 400p level. Our inclination will be to regard this as a bit of a game changer for the price, requiring another stir of the tea leaves as while we're calculating 448p above this point, the reality could prove quite a bit higher.

In house, we were speculating on a new line of greetings cards to mark the coming "Guy Fawkes" celebration. Imagine a card which exploded when opened? Though this has perhaps been already invented by folk sharing Guy Fawkes sentiments, it'd be hard to envision something quite as unpleasant as a card which issued a shower of Disneyesque glitter sparkles unexpectedly and therefore, a probable best seller. Until the first murder.

We do suspect CARD shall prove worth keeping an eye on during the coming weeks, ideally for closure above 343p as upward travel should prove difficult to restrain. Any attempt to slow the share down requires the price falling below RED at 295p currently and below the Dashed Red at 236p would scare the heck out of us as a decline to 220 / 150 eventually would appear inevitable.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. 'CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
